EC 1.1.1.276

Accepted name: serine 3-dehydrogenase (NADP+)

Reaction: L-serine + NADP+ = 2-aminoacetaldehyde + CO2 + NADPH + H+ (overall reaction)
(1a) L-serine + NADP+ = 2-aminomalonate semialdehyde + NADPH + H+
(1b) 2-aminomalonate semialdehyde = 2-aminoacetaldehyde + CO2 (spontaneous)

Other name(s): serine 3-dehydrogenase

Systematic name: L-serine:NADP+ 3-oxidoreductase

Comments: NAD+ cannot replace NADP+ [cf. EC 1.1.1.387, serine 3-dehydrogenase (NAD+)].
